I have just renewed my fence. The old one is sitting in my front garden and is there for anyone who needs a supply of timber for raised beds etc. Some of it has rotted but much is still useful. If you'd like it please just come and take it from my garden at 35 Fleetwood Road NW10
Hi my name is Mike.
I am starting a project photographing bee keepers and bees themselves.
The project is about the mutual respect between the keeper and the bee, showing the beauty of the collection of honey and the care you put in collecting it.
This is partly an issue-based project, due to the worldwide problems Apiarist are facing with the loss of Honey Bee Colonies, mainly associated with environment and climate factors, leading to the colony collapse disorder…Continue

Present: Marjory, Michael (part), Miko, Sanchia
While eating some very nice food….
Queens Park day apple pressing
Agreed we need more ‘talkers’ explaining what it’s about (and this applies to Transition events generally). Other suggestions are to have a map of local fruit trees; have a banner / sign / poster explaining harvesting; having more leaflets out…Continue

I am a Kensal Rise beekeeper, looking for somewhere suitable to site some hives - an overgrown garden with direct access would be ideal - in return for delicious local organic honey !
Anyone interested - please would you e mail me ?

Dear All, this is my first blog so I hope it works. A friend of mine supports the campaign to stop Brent from closing local libraries, which is of course dear to the hearts of Transition Folk. We seem to use them a lot, both as borrowers and as venues, so I hope that you will come along to the film if you can. I'll be there and it would be great to meet some of you afterwards for a drink. Let me know if you plan to come and we can wear distinctive clothing, or something.…Continue

Thursday 30th of June
On Sunday when we checked the bees we found a minor engineering problem in our second hive. The first (swarm) hive has settled in well and nearly covered all the frames with a text book combination of food and brood. However, the second hive of reared black bees came on standard sized National foundation frames. This means that when we put them in our deep brood boxes there was some space underneath. Naturally the bees have gone ahead…Continue
